Anyone who plans on going to Spain for almost any purpose, from work to studying, will of course need to make a Spanish visa application. The only time this is not necessary is if you plan on visiting for 90 days or less. A crucial part of your application is the requirement that you have a Spanish Medical Certificate of Good Health. 

The Spanish Medical Certificate is a statement that proves to the Spanish authorities that you are healthy enough to apply for a Spanish visa. It shows that you do not suffer from a disease that could negatively impact the health of the Spanish public when you enter the country, under the International Health Regulations 2005. 

Read on to learn about what is included on the certificate, and how you can get one. 

How do I get a Spanish Medical Certificate?

To get a Spanish Medical Certificate, you can use online services such as those provided by our partners at ZoomDoc. They will assist you in creating a certificate once you have provided them with the relevant documents from your doctor.

As part of the process, you will need to provide them with access to Summary Care Records and personal information. They will handle your information with care, and they will only use it for the express purpose of getting you a Spanish Medical Certificate.
